Unfortunately, some individuals may refuse to comply with these orders, causing stress and harm to those involved. If you are struggling to enforce a custody or divorce order, it is important to understand your legal options.
What Is a Custody or Divorce Order?
A custody order is a legal document issued by a court that outlines the custodial rights and responsibilities of each parent. Similarly, a divorce order is a legal document that finalizes the dissolution of a marriage, including division of assets and debts, spousal support, and child support.
Enforcing Custody and Divorce Orders
If a party is not complying with a custody or divorce order, there are legal options available to enforce these orders, including:
- Filing a Motion for Contempt: This is a legal action that alleges that the other party is violating the custody or divorce order. If the court finds that the other party is in contempt, they may face penalties such as fines or even jail time.
- Filing a Motion to Enforce: This is a legal action that seeks to enforce the custody or divorce order by requiring the other party to comply with its terms. If the court finds that the other party is not complying with the order, they may order the party to comply and may award attorney fees to the other party.
- Seeking Modification: In some cases, seeking modification of the custody or divorce order may be necessary if the order is no longer in the best interests of the child or if there has been a substantial change in circumstances.
